  1. “Bulk” samples are the unsheared bulks. “Phos.” samples are the phosphatase-treated unsheared bulks. “Sheared” samples are the sheared bulks. The “No. Filtered Sequences” is the number of sequences after filtering for sequencing artifacts (e.g. PCR duplicates). “Molecular Length” is the mean length (± standard deviation) of the generated reads.
